"Desiring with Supreme Ardor" (Summis desiderantes affectibus) was the title of a papal bull issued by Pope Innocent VIII on this day in 1484. It dealt with the activity of witches, and gave explicit papal approval for the torture of women accused of witchcraft.

Many parallels to the current "war on drugs". Can we put that behind us too?
